Leo reveals to Piper that he is an Avatar, despite the warnings from Alpha and Beta that Piper should find out in her own time. A huge disaster ensues as Leo tells Piper just as she is adding touchy ingredients to a potion cauldron, which then blows up. Leo inadvertently rewinds time, and Alpha and Beta appear at that moment and freeze subjective time. In a frozen interval he is taken to task by Alpha and Beta and once again they attempt to dissuade him from revealing he is become an avatar to Piper. He stubbornly maintains Piper will be able to handle it. All three sisters have some trouble with the news leading to Phoebe and Paige calling on Kyle for help, but his reaction to the news causes disastrous results. The Avatars take Leo to task but allow time to be rewound to before Leo tells Piper.

Why didn't she Freeze him?
18 July 2020 | by thornrosebudSee all my reviews

This episode shows how much Kyle is obsessed with the Avatars. Suspicions about Sheridan's whereabouts makes us wonder if Kyle is one of the good guys. The episode also makes us suspicious about the Avatars. What are they up to?

When the demons tricked the Charmed Ones we got a sense that demons run in gangs, like it real life. We know demons don't exactly pal around with each other but The Book of Shadows doesn't usually show "gangs".

The reason I'm writing this review is because any fans of the show would know that Piper can freeze someone, so why didn't she do that in this episode? It just didn't make sense. They should have come up with a different way here. I liked the episode but it was not one of my favorites.
